.s.. in a statement that was released this morning, defense secretary leon panetta says that the u.s. is working with british and algerienne governments to assist what happens with the hostage crisis. also, that algerian helicopters and special forces stormed a gas plant where the hostages were being held. >> house republicans say that they may seek a short- term extension of the government's debt limit in the next few weeks, a move that would avoid an immediate default by the treasury. republican paul ryan provided no details on the duration of any extension or conditions that might be attached. he spoke as republicans sought to unify for this spring's budget struggles, looking for ways to maximize their leverage in talks with president barack obama over spending cuts. >> president obama is second inauguration is days away, but do not expect the same pageantry that you saw the first time around. only 900,000 people are attending which is have as many who attended in 2009. this year's preparations have been replete with rehearsals, withstand ends, playing the president, vice president, chief jus
defensively when he was asked about not spending enough time with members of congress, he said now that his girls are getting this old, they're not going to want to be around him very much so noul now he'll have more time. but the truth is, they are becoming adolescents and that presents a lot of other challenges. but it is remarkable how ba ram and michel barack and michelle obama have kept these kids so normal. we think back to hillary clinton asked jackie kenly onassis for advice and keep them out of the public eye. that worked so successfully with her. and there's the transition here. i was really struck by the fact that susan eisenhower as a grandchild was writing in the "washington post" last week that she had secret service protection and she was objecting because she said the children go through a lot of change and it isn't easy to be the child or the grandchild of the president of the united states. but these girls have done it remarkably with these parents. >> they are so beautiful and so poised. malia is 14 these days, a freshman in high school. sasha is 11 and in sixth grade. an
